Fodor's Review

This museum displays the work of Rokuzan Ogiwara, a sculptor who was influenced by Auguste Rodin and pioneered modern sculptural styles in Japan. He is especially known for his female figures in repose and male figures in heroic poses. This ivy-covered brick building with a stunning bell tower is in Hotaka, 10 stops north of Matsumoto Station on the JR Oito Line. From Hotaka Station it's a 10-minute walk to the museum.
